Wapakoneta residents will be seeing something different with their February water bill.

A survey will accompany city water bills to determine what residents would like to see for the future in terms of refuse and recycling. After a December Wapakoneta City Council meeting it was discovered some residents would like to see a change. Currently, Wapakoneta conducts curbside recycle sorting but is looking for a more efficient process. Safety Service Director Chad Scott expects to see the current system to remain in place, but should a change be desired new equipment will need to be purchased.

"If we have to buy those totes or if that's what the residents opinion is to purchase those totes, we'll have to include that purchase price into the rates going further, into refuse and recycling," Scott said.
